Last year i got a bad stomach virus. 8 months on i've just been diagnosed with chronic tonsillitis by ent. Could a stomach virus/bacteria cause this?

In brief: Not likely

Whereas viral infections can help to produce chronic tonsillitis, it is unlikely the culprit for something that occurs 8 months later.
